Deacons are the spiritual leaders and positive Christian witnesses to the church. Each and every deacon is expected to live his/her life so as to be seen as honest, of good reputation, temperate, humble, worthy or respect, and of good report. At any time, you should feel welcome to reach out to any of the church deacons; Deacons are here to serve.
